Spacious, lively atmosphere with fine French Bistro style menu. Knowledgeable waiters provide attentive service. Options for lovers of seafood, meat and vegetables. White table clothes create elegance and charm.

Went with a group of 14 friends for a reunion dinner. Large restaurant, a little too noisy for me, good service (we knew the waiter), good food (had Gaspacho & Steak Tartar), tasty Cosmo, nice house merlot, great dessert (Profiteroles filled with vanilla ice cream and covered in homemade chocolate sauce.)

Mon Ami Gabi was the perfect place to have brunch with my daughters prior to my return flight home to San Francisco. The wait staff was friendly and efficient and did not rush us. When we sat at the table, there was a warm loaf of French bread, butter and a pot of jam waiting for us. We immediately devoured... More

The food was good but I've had better. I was expecting an amazing tasting food, it turned out medium. The salad was kind of wilted. Desert was tasty!

This is our "special treat" restaurant. Birthday brunch, anniversary dinner etc. Excellent and authentic French cuisine and very attentive (old school style) staff. Hardest part is trying to get a reservation!!

A regular neighborhood stop for us. We love sitting at the small bar (seats only about 8-10) and indulging on the French bread and appetizers along with a couple of drinks. Wonderful atmosphere for a relaxing time and discussing whatever as it is not impossible to have a conversation without shouting. If you are by yourself it is generally easy... More

We chose this place to celebrate our daughter's graduation from American University since her apartment is just a short walk away. We discovered that you can make reservations on line, so we did so a week in advance. Glad we did, as there were people waiting for tables when we arrived, but we were informed that our table was waiting... More

Mon Ami Gabi has an excellent atmosphere but only fair cuisine. Unless you like steak, the menu is very limited. The French name is misleading -- the food here is generic. The restaurant is a favorite of Bethesda nightlife frequenters, so if you decide to go, be sure to make a reservation.
